Back to the Arches

During our last visit to Moab, we managed to take in some of the most easily accessible sights in Arches National Park.  We all loved it the first time, and the kids have both been talking about it since.  In fact, between the arches and the swimming pool, they pretty much want to move here.

Delicate Arch
This trip, with limited time to see the sights, we decided to head straight for the most famous arch at the park, perhaps anywhere.  We drove past the visitors center and the spectacular formations we saw before and parked at the Delicate Arch trail head.  It ended up being both longer and more strenuous than we'd thought, but the view was out of this world.

The Bunny had to be hauled up most of the way by Joker, but the Bug and her friends were total troopers...  In fact, after rocking it up the entire trail, she wanted to hike the Park Avenue trail we'd done last time.
